About

Overview

Packed with real-world applications and excerpts from original sources, COUNSELING AND DIVERSITY addresses the three dimensions of multicultural counseling competency (awareness, knowledge and skills) while increasing readers' understanding of oppression and the structures of power. This innovative First Edition addresses the constructs of culture, worldview, race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, socioeconomic class, and spirituality and religion as complex dimensions of social and personal identity. In addition, a unique "satellite" series of monographs provide students with a thorough introduction to issues in counseling with specific populations, including Arab Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino/a Americans, Native Americans, and LGBTQ Americans. Offering complete flexibility, the monographs enable instructors to choose which groups they want to discuss in their course. In this way, COUNSELING AND DIVERSITY equips readers with a historical, sociopolitical, and psychological overview of each aspect of identity that will have resonance in counseling, psychotherapy, and other helping professions, and empowers readers with the knowledge and tools to be confident in counseling in a multicultural setting.

Features and Benefits

  • This innovative First Edition delivers a core set of theories and values, while its “satellite” series of ancillary monographs provide more thorough introductions to counseling within specific population groups, including African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Latino/Hispanic Americans, Middle Eastern Americans, and Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals.
  • The monographs cover the subject areas in greater depth than can be accomplished in a single textbook chapter--and enable instructors to choose the specific populations they emphasize in their course. Each monograph includes sections on demographics, sociopolitical history, current status, cultural systems, counseling dynamics and interventions, social justice and advocacy, and a resource list for further reading.
  • Boxed reflection/personal growth questions included throughout COUNSELING AND DIVERSITY help students apply chapter concepts to their own experiences, giving them a personal connection with text material.
  • Sections on “opening the dialogue” provide an impetus for exploration of the chapter content in sessions with clients.
  • Boxed case study examples with case discussion questions and summaries enable students to apply what they have learned to real-world scenarios.
  • Reflecting the latest developments from the field, boxed excerpts from relevant original sources are woven throughout each chapter.
  • Extremely practical, each chapter contains an opening quotation or excerpt from original literature that introduces the issues to be covered. Definitions of key concepts, applications to counseling and relevant conceptual models, a summary, and a student-focused bibliography are included as well.
  • The text also emphasizes relevant issues of social justice throughout.
